Hera Pheri starring Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty, Paresh Rawal and Tabu is one of the best comedy films made in Bollywood. The movie has received a cult status and today, it completes 21 years of its release.
Suniel Shetty took to Twitter to revisit the film. He tweeted, “No wonder we underestimate how quickly time flies. It seems I blinked, and 21 years went by. What a film we made @priyadarshandir @akshaykumar @SirPareshRawal @GulshanGroverGG #Tabu. Missing #OmPuri ji very dearly today…”
Akshay Kumar replied to Shetty and wrote, “Agreed! Even we didn’t know back then what a film we were making, each scene better than the other. Specially love this one : dhoti Genius of Priyan sir and epic dialogues by late Neeraj Vora.”
Directed by Priyadarshan, Hera Pheri was a remake of Malayalam film Ramji Rao Speaking. In 2006, a sequel to the film titled Phir Hera Pheri was released and it was also a super hit at the box office.
